Successful commissioning of DPD France (former Exapaq)

DPD Sublaines-FIVES

The new sortation DPD France sortation terminal is now fully operational at Sublaines, in the center of France.
In 2013, DPD France (former Exapaq) awarded Fives with a contract to supply an automated solution for its new 8,000sqm HQE (High Environmental Quality) terminal. Flexible and high-throughput, the solution based on Fives’ cross-belt technology was design to sort a large variety of different items like tires, trays and boxes, up to 50kg.

The installation is controlled by Trace®, Fives’ WCS and includes 7 high resolution video cameras to identify the parcels on 5 sides. 

Fourteen injection lines are gathered on 7 injectors to feed the 11,000pph sorter. Parcels are sorted to 60 reloading exits tied together with motorized telescopic equipment. Irregulars are automatically detected and transferred to a specific carousel.
